I can barely walk let alone run! Could I at least race in a car?
Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

Don't be so sure - I have a feeling Doc may be running on Nitro!

I am a bit partial to cake yes..
Mainly diet coke and fags though...
It's a diet for winners, 10 stone 2, and fit, erm, well, not at all really, but ya know, who needs to be fit when you have cars right!

Had a great time at the CXM rally - my first - and will certainly go back next year. But I think I'll only camp one night :lol:

Whilst sorting through my pics I found a pic I had left on my camera from last winter. I thought it was quite nice and makes me actually look forward to those cold. but sunny autumn/winter days.

That is a pleasant pic Phil.

Possibly open to many 'interpretations' - may I suggest 'wild animal spotted in the woods' ? :-)

Funny how this Citroën Classic Challenge came about... I wasn't really intending to do something like the BXagon again in the foreseeable, but it just sort of happened. It came about because I wanted a road trip again! And the BX is 30. Which is something of a landmark in car terms (I remember they made something of the Mini reaching 30). It'll be quite nice to see how it came be made into something that, although a spiritual successor to the BXagon, won't just be a repeat or imitation.

And it's good to have the Philibusters re-awoken, so to speak. I don't think Phil and I will necessarily be sharing the car this time: I think certainly as far as the mountain driving goes, neither of us would want to 'miss out'.

anyway, please visit

I've put a counter on there, so I can see just how many visit - or not! :lol:
